The Canadian Language Benchmarks Placement Test (CLBPT) is a streamlined assessment instrument that is an adaptable, efficient means to place adult learners in ESL programs. It is task-based, assesses four language skills (Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking), and is aligned with the Canadian Language Benchmarks levels 1 – 8. There are four parallel versions of the CLBPT.
Currently the CLBPT is available only to assessment centres and to all government-funded adult ESL programs throughout the country which meet the CLBPT policy requirements. In some regions, additional restrictions may apply.
